Occasionally God allows me this feeling of overflowing joy. It bubbles up from the depth of my being and I feel like a carefree child--secure, content, complete. Sometimes I wonder if this is what God felt as He walked through His beautiful garden, admiring all of His handiwork. Maybe He also had a sense of profound satisfaction as He pronounced everything "Very Good".
I remember having this feeling often as a child and now as an adult, occasionally, but I can not replicate it by my own will. I wish I could, as it is wonderful, and I love when it appears; it makes me appreciate such simple pleasures--like warm sunshine and the delicious sound of Sasha purring in my arms. When this joy appears, I am truly full; thank-full, grace-full, plenty-full.
Sometimes I think God gives me these joy-full times to give me little glimpses of Heaven.
You know He's preparing it for us right now!
And that is VERY GOOD!
" You have made know to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand."
